Ultragore || SubHuman 

Bass fiend Nick Suddarth has been playing electronic bass music for well over a decade, but it’s been in only the past few years that his production skills have shot him to the top of the US dubstep scene as the producer known as Sluggo. In only a short time, Sluggo’s carved out a unique place in the dubstep world as his signature dark and twisted sound incorporating elements from drum & bass, hip hop, hardcore, and metal have this producer murdering dancefloors across the world.
Formerly part of the duo Ultrablack, Sluggo stepped out on his own over the last year as a producer, remixer, and label boss. With releases on the genre’s most influential labels including Rottun, Play Me, Basshead, Subhuman, and Ultragore Recordings, he receives massive support from heavy hitters Downlink, Desielboy, 12th planet, Bassnectar, Ajapai and Reid Speed just to name a few. Sluggo also has been collaborating with a who’s who of the genre's finest, and has moved firmly from one-to-watch status to outright player in the pantheon of dubstep.
It was only a matter of time until Sluggo teamed up with long time associate Lank to create Ultragore Recordings the world’s #1 home of tear-out dubstep. Having garnered the 2010 Best New Label Award from Syphonic Distribution, Ultragore has become a fan favorite as the home of heavy bass and most murderous breaks in the dubstep world. In 2011 be on the look out for a full on assault from Ultragore with releases in the hopper from some of the biggest names in bass including Hulk, Liquid Stranger, and Mark Instinct as well as hot underground acts Torqux, Helicopter Showdown, and many more!

With a slew of releases on seminal labels such as Play Me, Subhuman and Ultragore in the hopper, collaborations with Brosafari of Evol Intent, Liquid Stranger, and remixes ranging from screamo band I Wrestled A Bear Once to Drum and bass bad boys BLOKHEAD, Sluggo’s set to set 2011 on fire with his brutal brand of hardcore tear-out dubstep.

*HULK STORE* rapture

Hulk is the impulsive, bone-breaking alter ego of audio-scientists Claw and Richie August. They combined their creative powers for the common good after meeting at the 2009 Winter Music Conference in Miami, exchanging research and data in the fields of Dubstep, Hip Hop and Drum & Bass. But after an experimental dubstep drop exposed them to gamma radiation, their talents fused into the raging, supreme beast that is Hulk.
The deadly duo then began to tear through the music world, crushing all in their path without pity or mercy. Notable heroes have been alerted to and crossed paths with Hulk, including Modestep, Reid Speed, Excision, iwrestledabearonce, Mrk1, Downlink, Dieselboy, Caliban, Bare, The Gaslamp Killer, Emmure, Messinian and DJ Lord of Public Enemy.
Hulk's first official release was home based in 2010 on Reid Speed's Play Me Records as a Beatport Exclusive. The duo recently dropped the bomb known as "The Brotorious EP" on Dieselboy's, SubHuman Records. Unfortunately, Hulk has shown no signs of stopping.

Of further concern, forthcoming releases on BroTown Recs, Mrk1's Contagious Records, Ultragore and SubHuman Records have only served to garner support for this ground-pounding terror!
The consolidation of their own label, BroTown Records, now with its 20th release, assures that Hulk is not only an unstoppable force, but is now furthering an entirely new batch of artists & collaboration and experimentation, to what ends we cannot know. We fear the music world may be doomed.We can only hope for salvation as Hulk prepares to destroy by releasing tracks from Messinian, Subshock, Mumblz and of course audio-smashings from Claw and Richie August - together, Hulk.
Prepare for mass Hulking Out around the world as Claw and Richie August combine their super-brains to bust out of convention and SMASH competition.
You'll like them better when they're angry.
